Hello all! First Post here =).
So in late May my friend and I are planning to go from the NY metro area to SF. We obviously want to go out and enjoy the drive out there but we are on a slight time constraint. Our hope is to get there in at least 5-6 days. Talking to friends, I was told that the I-78/I-44/I-40/5 route would be much more adventurous and a better scenic route. However, I know route 80 the quicker route. In my mind if we do the quicker route, it gives us more time to see different sites or stops off the highway. But it is only a difference of 3 hours (according to google maps). Personally, I've done several road trips around the Northeast and into the midwest areas. But never done a cross country trip, so I am very excited. But I figure I'd get some feedback from you guys here.
Thanks for reading!
